Anyway I tried to remove the stains from my nails today. Talk about a failed process! I tried taking some pictures, but the pictures are deceiving! The first picture you can see the staining a little, but in the second picture they don't look so bad. Kind of makes me feel crazy!
I was determined to rid my nails of the stains and have beautiful white tips and pink nail beds. I started by soaking my nails in Hydrogen Peroxide, then brushing them with a nail brush and baking soda.
Zero improvement! So I moved on to a spin brush and whitening toothpaste followed by more Hydrogen Peroxide and another brushing. Still no improvement. In the second picture you can see they are still stained. Oh well, I tried! I guess I should just repaint them - hmmm, what color should I choose?
After a long day at work, I came home to a lot of the Christmas presents I ordered from Etsy. I am so impressed. I showed what I ordered on here, but in person these gifts look great! I can't believe how fast everything arrived. If you remember I posted a hint for John for some bracelets to replace the Alex & Ani bracelets I lost. Well someone from ZeeBerry commented that they were having a discount on their site of 20% and they carried Alex & Ani Bracelets. Normally I would think something like this is a spam comment, but the way it was written, made me second guess that and so I checked it out. What I found out is that Zeeberry is a 100% women owned company, owned by two women. So maybe they are just trying to get the name out there. Plus I liked the way they set up their site and they have a great selection and pricing. It just so happened that comment posted on the same day I won $50 at work in a 50/50 raffle. So I decided I would replace my Alex & Ani bracelets. I bought different ones this time, since I am still holding out hope that I will find the ones I lost. I paid $28 for each of the three that I had lost, so $84 for three. On Zeeberry with their sale going on I was able to get the Tree of Life/Good Luck 7 bracelet group and I ordered another charm bangle, but instead of a red charm, I got the black one. I paid $50.54 for all of them! SCORE! They arrived today too. Check them out!
I am hoping the Good Luck Charm will be just that for the remainder of this year and the year to come!
Here's a quick picture of the bracelets on with my still nekkid nails. I want to order a set of silver ones to mix in with these. I'm just happy to have some small thin buildable bangles back on my wrists. I especially love that the bangles are made of recycled materials.
Ironically in the last picture, you can actually see the stains on my nails better than in the pictures above! Go figure! I still haven't painted my nails. We had to go to the Science Fair at Coco's school. She won 2nd place! What a perfect end to an otherwise long day! Now off to paint my nails, if I can figure out what I want to wear.
